Thousands Rush Across Macedonia Border

Thousands of migrants rushed past police lines across the border into Macedonia on Saturday after spending days without shelter, food or water. Security forces threw stun grenades and beat many of the migrants with batons, ultimately containing hundreds. Many of the migrants are Syrian refugees, fleeing war by entering Greece on the way to Hungary and the Schengen zone. Macedonia closed its borders to migrants on Thursday and declared a state of emergency.
